2015 Audi TT teased in design sketches
The Audi TT is about to move in to its third iteration as it continues its progress from hairdresser’s car to mini R8, with a reveal of the 2015 Audi TT at the Geneva Motor Show next month. Ahead of that reveal opf the new TT, Audi has released two design sketches (above) to tease the changes it’s wrought to the TT and whet appetites for the proper reveal.
The official design sketches show a TT that moves in the direction of the R8 in design,m with new grill, new headlights, sharper lines and the four rings badge moved up on to the bonnet.
Despite the new design, the new TT stays close to the current TT with big wheelarches, proper shoulder line, a liftback tailgate and curved roofline; this may be a new TT, but it’s still clearly a TT.
Underpinning the new TT is a variation on VW’s new MQB platform, the body is made from steel an aluminium, the suspension remains basically the same but with lighter components and a new electro-mechanical steering setup promises sharper feel.
Under the bonnet is expected to be updated versions of the 1.8 and 2.0 litre petrols with either six-speed manual or six-speed S tronic gearboxes, a four wheel drive option and, a bit further down the line, a new Audi TT RS. There will probably also be a frugal diesel version with a 2.0 litre TDI delivering around 180bhp.
The new Audi TT will be revealed next month at Geneva, although it’s likely we’ll get photos and details before then.
